Go to the Room for Debate section of the New York Times and look for a debate that concerns a policy issue that we have covered in Modules 1-3. Then, do the following:
- Summarize the gist of the debate by identifying the issue, and summarizing what each of the discussants has to say. Be sure to identify the debaters/discussants when you present their argument.
- Your initial post must also clearly identify the issue in question in your textbook (chapter, page), and should then discuss how the debate relates to the discussion in your textbook.
- Does the debate agree or disagree in part or wholly with your book?
- Does it extend and add to what is covered in the book in any way?
